Parents Guide to Problem Behavior

Useful to: Parent Centers for sharing with families whose child or children exhibit challenging behavior.

When children struggle with their behavior, it can have a negative impact on everyone in the family. Parents know they need to respond, but they often aren’t sure what’s the best strategy, especially if a child is frequently acting out and nothing seems to work. This guide from the Child Mind Institute offers parents a comprehensive look at problem behavior. It covers a variety of topics, including:

  • what may be triggering problem behavior,
  • how to improve the parent-child relationship when it becomes strained,
  • what to do if kids are struggling with behavior in school and
  • how to get professional help if you need it.
